I'm quite taken with this costume portrait for some reason and am wondering who the photographer was. Anyone know? David, I vaguely remember you mentioning that Monroe had ACJ sit in for some of the Gish portraits. Unfortunately this is not an original and has "Frank [illegible]" written on the back. The original must have gorgeous depth.

It's too bad that so many portraits of male stars are overlooked. I especially like many done by Freulich but they just seem to sit around with no takers.

    @ Profdash : Thanks so much! I've ordered a copy and eagerly await its arrival. I'll post the wonderful TCM and Times articles in an album in a bit. Hope you're enjoying your trip.

    It was TCM's book of the month for June and was reviewed very favorably in the LA Times 2 weeks ago. Here is the Amazon link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/022601326X/ref=s9_psimh_gw_p14_d0_i1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1JA2TCANABNH7KQ5J83D&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=1389517282&pf_rd_i=507846

    @ Profdash : Thanks so much, David. And it's published! Must go find a copy!!! Thanks for letting us know. If you can make a small album here to promote it that would be excellent. Kirk Taylor's book was recently published also and must take a look for that as well. Oh and Bob said he'd never do another book after Jazz Age Beauties but he is working on a new book as well.

    Can you add a link for it where it's for sale? Can't wait to read it!

    I write about Diem, Abbe, and Johnston in Orphans of the Storm in my recently published STILL: American Silent Motion Picture Photography (University of Chicago Press).
